Who we are:
Our congregation is primarily English-speaking expatriates, largely professional or managerial, working or retired, from fields such as financial services, engineering, academia and supporting industries, scientific research, IT, HR, etc.. There are some long-term residents and naturalized Swiss, some in mixed British/Swiss marriages, followed by younger families and a regular turnover of others on shorter-term contracts. A number of Swiss nationals choose Anglican worship. The congregation comprises British, North American, African, Indian, Asian, Swiss and other European nationalities who have found their spiritual home in St Andrews. The electoral roll is 154. The somewhat middle class, well-educated make-up of our congregation is the result of a combination of facts: we are an Anglican church located in Zurich, Switzerland’s major financial and commercial centre, subject to Swiss employment legislation and recruitment habits.
